Today is one of those moments, beginning a new journal full of hope and expectation – determined that you will record in it regularly but deep down knowing it will tailor off, you will become complacent, it will become another part filled book.
The thing is, that is not an option this time. This time is different. The difference is I recognise my freedom and I won’t give in to fear.
I have ‘couched with fear’ (to quote Livy Gibbs) for far too long and it has done nothing but hinder me in my spiritual life. I won’t do it anymore.
As I sit here, 28wks pregnant and feel my baby kick, I am reminded that ever since I became pregnant, I have felt The Lord is birthing something new within me. A new vision and a new hope. (I was recently reading ‘Lioness Arising by Lisa Bevere and was encouraged by her feelings when she was pregnant) The veil has been removed and I now see clearly what I haven’t before.
Now is the time to dream big dreams and to step out in all God has for me.
So what does that mean? Speaking aloud the dreams I have, not being afraid to say I want to be influential for God. Not being afraid of what people might say.
1. I want to write a book
2. I want to preach
3. I want to develop the gift of prophecy and healing
4. I want to impact my society
5. I want to live by faith, no longer constrained by worry.
Pretty big dreams right? Things I cannot do on my own and in my own strength, which is exactly the point.
I have spent too long constraining myself to do the things I knew I could do and relying on myself and not God.
That is not an option for me anymore. The journey begins…
What are your big dreams? Are you brave enough to speak them aloud? I would love to hear from you.
